With deep empathy, my husband, Roman, and I would like to share our condolences with the families of chi Dao, chi Mai, anh Tam, chi Thanh, Xuan Dung & Xuan Lieu. Still trying to find our balance from the devastating loss of my father a few months ago, we understand the grief of having lost such a great role model of a devoted mother/grandmother/great-grandmother as yours. May her lasting legacy help you speed through the healing process.

My Grandma
Being born and raised in America, it’s easy to forget how privileged and lucky we are especially when we live in such an ethnocentric bubble where our problems are in reality, relatively small. But when hearing of our families’ immigrant histories and the hardships our parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles had to face in order to build the privileged lives we lead today, we are reminded of the realities of the suffering world outside of the United States. And we are also reminded of how grateful we should be to have been protected from all of it by these powerful and brave men and women who sacrificed everything to give us the world. From my Grandma’s life story, I learned the true meaning of hard work and determination to prosper from almost nothing. Working her way up through her schooling and her career of nursing, Grandma has never given up even through the hard times that occurred in taking care of a large family throughout the Vietnam War. It is astonishing that she kept her head up high and her spirits strong through everything. As an inspiration to me and everyone else in the family, she continuously inspires us to keep going and be successful in the same way that she aspired to be through giving the younger generation a sense of motivation and greater knowledge.
Grandma helped me to understand that whether it is in school, outside of school, in my day to day life, I should never give up. She inspires me to just look to the future and work towards the future, and not dwell on the temporarily bad times that may be going on right now but to look at the good times that are to come. She has influenced me, as well as the rest of the family, to live our lives in the light of positivity instead of the darkness of negativity, as we will never achieve success without believing in ourselves and in the potential of our futures. Thank you Grandma for teaching me these ideals and inspiring me to work hard, every day of my life. I admire you to no end.

This is a poem I wrote to honor all mothers, which I'd like to share with my friend Jennie Le and her extended family. My condolences to all of you for the loss of your loved one.

MOTHER'S LEGACY

Mother’s pain
Umbilical cord
Detached
I cried
For the first time
I shook hands with LIFE

Mother’s milk
Craving baby
Attached
I smiled
For the first time
I shook hands with LOVE

Mother’s heart
Beating rhythm
Stopped
I wept
With great sorrow
I shook hands with DEATH

From my mother’s soul
Life, love, death
I learned

From my mother’s flesh
Skin color
I inherited

From my mother’s tongue
Language
I spoke

From my mother’s life
Inspiration
I found

With Mother’s legacy,
My roots go deep,
My wings soar high.
I comprehended
For the first time
I shook hands with my identity.

My mom is Cuc T. Nguyen, who has passed away peacefully in her sleep in San Diego, CA, on December 31, 2020. She was born on July 1, 1929 in a village in Long An province, south of Viet Nam.
My mom went on to become a nurse. She married my dad, Tien van Le, He at the time was a nurse too. They moved to Saigon and had 7 children. My dad went to law school then became a judge while my mom continued to practice nursing in the Children hospital of Saigon. She became the Director of nursing there and worked there until she retired.
My dad passed away early, when my mom was in her 40s and I was just 15 years old. My mom went on continue to go to work and raised all of the children by herself. She loved all of us and devoted all of her life for us, her children, then grandchildren and great grandchildren. She taught us to work hard, to be a good person, to be the best that you can be, to love and support each other and family, always. She is the best example of never stop fighting for what you believe in. I would give my mom all the credits for all the achievement that we, all the children have in our life.
We, all the children, love my mom very much and we all have made my mom very proud. The children include my sister Dao who is a retired physician. My sister Mai and her husband Toan , have 3 children, Michelle, Megen, and Tim. They all got married and have children. My brother Tien, who passed away in his 20s. My brother Tam and his wife Thuy, have a son, Alex. Alex has just engaged to Katie. My husband Lam and I have a daughter Quyen. Quyen and Mike, her husband have just had an adorable son, Sol. My two younger twin sister, Dung and her husband have a daughter, Caroline. My sister Lieu and her husband Ngoc have a daughter, Jamie.
My mom’s love also passed on to her extended family, my aunts, my uncles, my cousins. Anyone who my mom touched would give her the highest respect and love.
I will always remember and honor her as long as I live.

Mom left her beloved family so suddenly! With a deep sorrow that nothing seems to pertain to this world except tears and sadness, I am mourning the passing of my loving mother. When I receive a white rose as for those who lost a mother, I can't help thinking about the sacrificed life that my mom lived for her children and grandchildren. With the greatest strength and admirable perseverance, my mother raised her seven children entirely by herself since her husband, our father, passed away almost 50 years ago. Mom is no longer with us! She peacefully rested but her legacy of love and family forever lives in the hearts of her beloved sister, mother, aunt, children, and grandchildren.
